If you grew up in Oklahoma in the 60s and 70s, your eyes probably still light up when someone mentions horny toads and Foreman Scotty, Andrews Park and Owens Stadium. That’s why Bill Moore decided to write Memories of an Okie Boomer. After spending four decades working on newspapers and PR companies around the globe, it seemed time to finally write about the important stuff. Well, stuff that was important to an “active” child growing up in Norman.
Bill humorously recounts - and with only slight exaggeration - an energetic Okie boyhood of bruises, bikes, stubbed toes and Monkey’s Blood, and playing non-stop from dawn to dusk with his best friend Steve in those brutal Oklahoma summers. Short and energetic - just like he was - Memories of an Okie Boomer will make you laugh and almost certainly bring back a couple of your best childhood memories.
